years, roughly, rough numbers, about 1 million new jobs in the state of texas in the last five years. and roughly a million lost jobs in california. that's amazing but, in fact, one of the points that we are writing a book on this is what we're seeing is one of the great wealth transfers in american history, geographically, from states like california that don't get it right. my home state of illinois is another example in states that do get it right like texas. this is one reason to be very bullish on the future of texas. the interesting thing also is texas and california are the two highest immigration states. one of the interesting things is that texas does a much, much better job in my opinion of economically assimilate in immigrants so that they are successful. telephone is much more of a welfare state. it in dr. mays immigrants into the welfare system at a much higher pace than texas does. people come to texas in my opinion for jobs. people go to california for welfare. so you're saying i think the different economic outcomes as a result of this. texas is the mall the other sta
